How to make Homemade Peanut Butter Cups
To make them, simply add the chocolate to a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals until melted and smooth.
Line a muffin pan with muffin cases, and add a tablespoon of melted chocolate to each one.
Freeze until firm.
In a separate bowl, mix together the peanut butter, vanilla, icing sugar, and butter. Heat until runny enough that it can easily be poured.
Add a tablespoon of the peanut butter mixture to each muffin case. Freeze until firm.
Top the peanut butter layer with the remaining melted chocolate, and freeze once again until firm. Done!

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
